BNY Mellon: Collateral Universe to help buy-side clients manage regulatory change
The Collateral Universe(SM), BNY Mellon’s suite of second generation collateral management capabilities and solutions, is designed to help buy-side clients manage the impact of regulatory change on their investment processes.
The BNY Mellon Collateral Universe combines the company's comprehensive range of collateral management and related solutions with the benefits provided by its central securities depositary - BNY Mellon CSD - and its new Collateral Aggregator.
BNY Mellon's Collateral Universe encompasses collateral management solutions, including segregation, optimization, aggregation, securities financing, liquidity management, consulting, derivatives lifecycle management and reporting.
Established to help clients address new regulations, including Basel III, EMIR, AIFMD and MiFID as well as the advent of T2S, BNY Mellon's Brussels-based CSD has received a Belgian Royal Decree granting it Securities Settlement System (SSS) status. As an SSS, BNY Mellon CSD is formally recognized to be an appropriate system under EMIR Article 47.3 for the holding of financial instruments as margins or as default fund contributions for CCPs, an important component in assisting clients to reduce their risk in line with the EU Settlement Finality Directive.
In May, the CSD signed a framework agreement with the Eurosystem to allow it to outsource settlement to the T2S platform. As a direct T2S participant, the CSD will have the opportunity to leverage, among other capabilities, the settlement platform’s auto collateralization programme for central bank money and its collateral pooling facilities to help speed up the velocity of collateral within global markets.
Another key feature of the Collateral Universe will be the new Collateral Aggregator, a leading-edge platform that offers clients a consolidated and highly transparent view of all their available collateral, and all their collateral positions and related activities, held with BNY Mellon.
Through the Aggregator, buy-side clients will be able to enhance their ability to manage their collateral and counterparty exposures via a single portal. Clients will be able to easily identify, manage, assess and forecast their global collateral holdings
